Why is relying on Emergency Medical Services (EMS) liable to send your bank balance to the morgue? [Michael Regilio] (https://www.instagram.com/michaelregilio/) joins us on Skeptical Sunday to find out! On This Week's Skeptical Sunday, We Discuss: ---Unlike police and fire departments, emergency medical services (EMS) are not deemed essential across most of the US — which means they're often underfunded and struggling to provide adequate care. ---Insurance policies commonly omit coverage for EMS-provided ambulance rides, making them cost-prohibitive for the people who often need them the most. ---Even the EMTs who staff EMS outfits are underpaid and can't usually afford to make use of them without going into the red. ---Who profits from the status quo of the broken EMS system, and why is it so hard to enact the reforms necessary to have providers declared essential? ---What can we do to educate and advocate for the overhauls necessary to make EMS viable for everyone? ---Connect with Jordan on [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) , [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/jordanharbinger) , and [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/c/THEJORDANHARBINGERSHOW) .

Please share with us at [friday@jordanharbinger.com] (mailto:friday@jordanharbinger.com) (and we'll share some of our own as well)! ---You love your wife, but a surgical mishap makes sex too painful for her. She once joked that maybe you should find a girlfriend to help you in that department, so you did — and it didn't go over as well as you might have hoped. Is there an ethical way to have your needs met elsewhere? ---An addendum to the statute of limitations in your state has you considering taking legal action against your father — who abused you when you were still a child. Would it be worth the time, energy, and money to do so at this point? [Once again, thanks to attorney [Corbin Payne] (https://twitter.com/the_sue_chef) for helping us answer another difficult one!] ---You're financially reliant on your judgmental mother who has withdrawn her support in the past when she felt your values didn't align with hers.

[Thanks to attorney [Corbin Payne] (https://twitter.com/the_sue_chef) for getting us out of yet another pickle!] ---You spent four years getting a degree in a field that isn't hiring at the pay rate you're worth. Should you forge the path forward by starting your own business, continue working for peanuts, or just give up and go for a new degree? ---Your wife doesn't buy your estranged father's attempts to make nice with your family &mdash; since his dire medical diagnosis &mdash; as anything more than a narcissistic compulsion to regain power in the relationship. Does she have a point, or has Dad really turned over a new leaf? ---As an entrepreneurial woman building your successful business over the past 10 years, you find that clients seem to expect a level of personal involvement or interest above and beyond the service you're providing. How can you get them to respect your boundaries without sending them to the competition? ---You don't mean to come off as a closed book when meeting new people, but you have trouble understanding when it's appropriate to share thoughts and details from your personal life or keep them to yourself.
